Real Madrid fans think Carlo Ancelotti has ‘leaked’ his tactics against Manchester City as he revealed Eduardo Camavinga’s position.
The Champions League holders meet Pep Guardiola’s Man City in the first leg of their semi-final tie tonight at the Bernabeu.
Both managers have spoken to the press ahead of the blockbuster clash, with Ancelotti revealing his tactics against the Premier League side.
Well, that’s what Real fans online think as they were all saying the same thing following the veteran Italian’s pre-match presser.
He spoke about Camavinga’s hybrid full-back role, explaining he only plays at full-back when he doesn’t have the ball.
“Camavinga is only a full-back when he doesn’t have the ball,” said the 63-year-old.
“In possession, he gets forward so much that he is like a midfielder.
“He’s not a full-back who plays very wide, which makes sense because Vinícius is there on that wing.”
Ancelotti speaking about Camavinga’s position sent social media wild as Real supporters believe he’s given away his tactics ahead of tonight’s match.
One Twitter user wrote: “Carlo what are you doing.”
A second tweeted: “Noticed it last game, Carlo doesn’t even care about leaking his tactics.”
A third added: “Carlo is giving out his plans in press conference.”
A fourth commented: “Why is he telling them his tactics.”
A fifth added: “Carlo is cooking something.”
Another said: “Quit talking about our entire gameplay before the actual game wtf.”
Camavinga, who’s a midfielder by trade, is no stranger to playing at left-back, having starred in that role for France against Tunisia in the 2022 World Cup.
The 20-year-old has impressed under Ancelotti, making 52 appearances in all competitions this season.
